Help For The Busy Mom

I have noticed we moms have a tendency to compare our "busyness schedules" when we meet up and greet each other!

However, when the busy word slips through my lips it also triggers a "warning signal" of sorts. I admit that when my momlife is filled with … [Read more...]

Mom Gut Check

“In a minute” she shot out in frustration never taking her eyes off of the iphone as she texted rapid fire. In front of her stood a little girl, I watched the little face contort as she hesitated and thoughtfully pleaded at her mother, with her heart...she then gave a little shake of her head and went back to her skipping in place, then stooped down to pick up a stick. My walking in the park propelled me forward and the scene playing out … [Read more...]

No Time = No Posts

Hey there, ho there! How you be? I be swamped!  Major deadlines at MomLife Today that have kept me running around on my computer and to meetings whenever I have had some time to myself.  Which has been seldom and at strangely odd times.  Why you ask?

Forget March Madness...for all moms, the madness is in May. I mean seriously...it's like every school, church and civic organization tries to fit into the month of May whatever they did not manage to get done previously in the school calendar year. I don't know whether I am coming or going. I have this constant nagging in the back of my head, "What have I forgotten?" Can you relate? If some resort would wise up and offer a "Mom's … [Read more...]
